A Florida man was in complete shock to find a 8-foot-long alligator in his pool Monday. Photos of the reptile were posted on Facebook by Boca Raton Police Services Department.

Matt Fino told Fox-affiliated WSVN he was taking his dog for a routine morning walk when he discovered the alligator.

"It's an eye-opener," he told the TV station, adding he called his wife to check the pool as he couldn't believe what he saw.

Janet Rosa told WSVN: “I saw the gator, and I couldn’t even... I was in total shock.”

The family called the police, who contacted the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Eventually a gator trapper came to remove the reptile from the pool. No one was injured in the incident. It was unclear if the alligator was released back into the wild.

"For one city resident their morning routine was anything but routine. This morning they woke up and found an 8-foot alligator in their pool on SW 14th Drive. A Boca Raton Police Officer stood by, at a safe distance, while waiting for MyFWC to arrive and remove it," the police department wrote on Facebook.

The family said they will be more cautious after the incident, while the neighborhood was also on alert for any similar alligator sighting.

“There is absolutely no doubt that every morning when I open that door, I’ll be staring at the pool first," he said.

According to reports, in 2016, the state wildlife agency received 12,772 complaints about alligators' nuisance and removed 8,118 gators.

“If you live on water, we recommend keeping your pet on a leash and monitor the pet,” Carol Lyn Parrish, spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said. “We have alligators all over South Florida. If [you] find it in the pool, give us a call.”
